^ I would suggest you wait till September 9th before making your purchase...
Intel is going to launch newer i5 CPUs, that will offer very good value...So you might want to check that out and then go ahead with your PC purchase...

but dose it all sound good to you
like is the mobo good for the i5 and all the rest of the stuff

Just keep the CPU and the mobo options open...
They should be around the same price segment as that mobo and CPU(Maybe i5 might cost little higher but not very much)...

For rest of the parts,
HDD - Make sure you get the 7200.12 500GB Seagate drives...they are better and faster...

PSU - And go with the 650W PSU only if you are intended to running 2x GTS 250 in SLI( Depends on the mobo that you would choose)
A solid 550W from Corsair/ Antec EA 500W is more than suffice for a single card setup...

GPU - GTS 250 is a good option...What is the resolution that you want to game ?? and you can also consider cheaper options like the HD 4850/ the HD 4870, that would perform as good or better than the GTS250...

DVD - Get the SATA drive instead of the IDE - Thinner cable - less clutter.

RAM - You would get better RAM options once i5s are released...

yh that will be good i will keep the mobo and cpu open and yes i just want a gpu thats fast that will play stuff like fallout3 gta4 css wow tf2 that sort of stuff and crysis can go piss off its a crap game anyway lol sos i just hate all the crysis stuff

The GTS 250 and HD 4850 performs very similar to each other...So I would suggest you get which ever is cheaper...
And check out the card that I had linked...it cost the same as the GTS card that you have listed but is more powerful than that card and is GTX 260 equivalent...

If you're still 2 months away from buying your parts come back and ask for advice in about six weeks.
Also read the sticky topic: *How To Ask For New Build Advice* up above.
In the mean time go read some of the other build threads to get an idea what people are recommending.
And there is no need to run five threads on the same subject in the same week. It just wastes the forum members time.
